Walking through the thoughts of How JK Rowlings got inspired to write Harry Potter.
Max_H
, Oct 2021
Our tour guide, Kristel was terrific. This is not a tour for children as it is the knowledge of how JK Rowlings got her ideas and thoughts on writing the stories of Harry Potter and his gang. She had great knowledge and was able to answer all the questions. This was enjoyable.

Excellent Tour Guide - Jenny

Jenny, our tour guide, was excellent! Very passionate about the tour and the Harry Potter world. There was a younger member of the tour who was very excited and hadn't read all the books yet and Jenny worked hard to avoid spoilers for her which was very thoughtful! I'd definitely recommend this tour for Harry Potter fans!
